About Marissa

I am a professional artist specializing in illustration and mixed media. I have a background with music as well, specifically the piano (since I was 8). I went to school for fine arts at SCAD, and therefore have cultivated technique skills in painting, drawing, and overall draftsmanship, efficiently.

I've won several awards in drawing while in college as well. Art has always been a passion of mine, I can't remember a time when creativity wasn't an essential part of my life. I have worked with children and adults alike to help bring out their desire to learn a craft that has been taken for granted within society. Although art is a competitive field, like most fields, it is a satisfying one that will teach the individual to hone in on a skill while also bringing ideas to life, something I believe is sorely lacking in other fields. I love seeing students grow with their work, when learning painting I have noticed their minds be more open to possibilities while working through a series of failures with the medium that are overcome, instead of corrected, with exploration.

Painting: oil, acrylic, some watercolor. Color Theory. (art history too, I tend to bring examples so students will be encouraged to look at old masters, or contemporary artists to get an idea of a style or medium, etc. )
Drawing: all mediums (pencil, pen, colored pencil, draftsmanship, composition,)
Mixed media: charcoal, collage, digital illustration, digital design.

I bring life and fun to an art lesson, while focusing on skill set and the techniques necessary for progression in a medium. My lesson plans include compositional theory in drawing and design, human anatomy and color theory. Art history will naturally be a part of the lesson as well, so as to get you more acquainted with the history of art throughout the world, and the various areas of study one might progress in.

Drawing

Graduated with honors from Savannah College of Art and Design, 2012, with a BFA in illustration. I have multiple backgrounds with human anatomy and compositional drawing, both from the Parsons New School and The Art Students League of New York, prior to college, and during college. Life drawing and painting courses I took prior to college to prep me for submitting my portfolio. Drawing has been an every day practice for me, I have taught people the basics of foreshortening and "thinking like a sculptor" when drawing any given object on paper. These are very old techniques that have been used for centuries. Accuracy is important, however I will teach them that realism does not mean photo realism, and getting ideas crossed, whether on canvas or on paper, is about the right information and practice.
